The mightiest looking Pokémon? Got a lot to choose from but I'd say it'd probably be Gyarados, Feraligatr or Emboar, something around that?

Metagross. You just don't argue with a giant four legged steel monster with piercing, glowing red eyes and a giant X plastered across its face. Its massive size and that cold, mechanical stare definitely lends Metagross an imposing presence on the battlefield.

I think we all know Hydreigon is the most fearsome Pokemon of them all.



God help you should you encounter this guy.

Yeah, Hydreigon is such an awesome Pokemon if you put all that effort in training your Deino.

I happen to use one on my main team, female with Docile nature.

Hydreigon may look so cool but I often have trouble saying it's name cos I don't understand German numbers.

Pfft Drakow any faster Pokemon with a fighting type move could turn Hydreigon to scrap metal also Conkeldurr. Also Blissey can stall it out? idk not updated with competitive stuff atm

What about Houndoom? I think a hellhound is pretty damn scary.

Or Ariados /scared of spiders.

Frankly, nearly all the dog Pokemon look frightening to me. Mainly because of many negative IRL run ins with dogs and my severe allergies to them.

Yes, even Stoutland, because mustaches creep the heck out of me.

Duuuuuuuude. The basis of your argument is too generalized as it applies to all Pokemon - all Pokemon have weaknesses and counters. Hydreigon beats Conkeldurr one on one actually as it OHKO's with Draco Meteor and Mach Punch does around 70% of Hydreigon's health. Blissey usually can stall Hydreigon out but if it has Taunt, Hydreigon can beat it.

You don't really pronounce the numbers really, I pronounce it Hy-dree-gun.

Also yeah focus blast basically decimates him hahaa.

Yeah I can see that haha.

Also, what do you guys think the Eeveelutions are? I saw you talking about dogs earlier and I was wondering if they were actually canines or felines. I thought they were canine/fox like, but then Espeon looks like an all around feline.

I dunno... I'd have to say they're more cat than dog, but even so I really don't consider them to be cats in the way Meowth and Skitty are cats. Though you could make an argument for Flareon, at the very least, to be fox-like. Which can get confusing because we also have fox-like Fire types in Vulpix and Ninetales, lol

At the very least, Jolteon and Espeon are the most cat-like of the bunch, at least IMO.

Yeah Flareon for fox kind of thing would be right I guess, but idk I also classified Umbreon in that because he is so lean and swift and kind of has this posture too.

I consider them more feline than anything. I just don't get how the Eeveelutions could be taken as canines, although everyone has their own opinion.

Yeah, I don't really know what they're supposed to be based from. They do look a lot like felines though!

EDIT: also i forget, does vaporeon have 4 feet?

I can't say I ever thought about what real animal the Eeveelutions would equate to, but I definitely agree they'd be feline over canine.

Umbreon is definitely a dog.
Jolteon looks very much like a cat.
Espeon is the most cat-like.
Vaporeon comes in a close second.
Flareon looks more like a fox to me, as does Glaceon.
Leafeon is definitely a cat.

I agree, they're more feline.

Okay this is something that I've been thinking about for a long time now. Wailord is huge, right? Weighs 877.4 pounds! Wow that's a lot of pounds! Except oh wait...the animal its based on is 400,000 pounds.

Similarly, Pokemon such as Ledyba, based on a teeny tiny ladybug, is 3 feet tall. Reuniclus is even worse as a cell is microscopic. Do you think they'll ever take a truly massive Pokemon and make it match how big it should be? Or, probably more likely, make a really tiny Pokemon because the thing it was based on is really tiny?

Probably not. I know that in Battle Revolution they tried to "scale" the size of the Pokemon models so, say, Rattata looks minuscule if you pair it up with something like Groudon in a double battle. And I noticed they were even trying to do that to some degree in B/W. If they applied that principle to extremes in size, you'd either have the huge Pokemon completely blocking the view of the other Pokemon, or the small Pokemon would be so tiny you wouldn't be able to see it in battle.

Of course this is the series where certain species of mice/rats are larger than certain species of cats, so "size-correctness" doesn't seem to be too big a concern for the franchise anyway xD

I personally wouldn't want that. Not only does it causes complications in battling, I also don't want really tiny Pokemon. ):

...yes, Vaporeon have four feet.

I agree, tiny Pokémon wouldn't be too good. It'd be easy enough to step on a Joltik, let alone something smaller.

There's some things I don't get... how come one Pansear is the only elemental monkey who can learn an elemental punch, which is Fire Punch. Why can't Panpour learn Ice Punch and why can't Pansage learn ThunderPunch. It came to my mind when I looked up Pansear's egg move list. It learns Fire Punch if bred with I forgot who. SO how come Panpour can Aqua Tail from a Floatzel but not Ice Punch from a Floatzel that knows it?
